Alien Nation is a television show from the Fox Network which lasted a single season. Alien Nation: Body and Soul (original airdate: October 10, 1995) was the second television movie produced to continue the story after the cancellation of the popular series.
Alien Nation: Body and Soul was written by Andrew Schneider, Diane Frolov, Renee & Harry Longstreet (previously novelized by Peter David), and was directed by Kenneth Johnson.
It follows the television series format of two parallel storylines. The first plot is about a seemingly human-Tenctonese hybrid child involved in a sinister experiment with a Newcomer scientist disguised as a human. The sub-plot is the budding relationship between Matt Sikes and his Tenctonese neighbor Dr. Cathy Frankel. The relationship between Matt and Cathy was an ongoing theme of the Alien Nation television series.
